Vacationing at a ski resort, retired screen diva Norma Shearer noticed a picture of pretty Jeanette Morrison. In no time Jeanette had a screen test, a new name Janet Leigh and the lead opposite heartthrob Van Johnson in The Romance of Rosy Ridge. Coltish, wide-eyed and talented, Leigh was the ideal choice to play a coltish, wide-eyed beauty in this poignant love story set in the post-Civil War Ozarks, where folks are still divided blue versus gray. When an ex-soldier (Johnson) comes to the troubled town wearing military britches so faded no one can tell the original color, he gets the locals all riled up especially when he courts the daughter (Leigh) of an ex-Johnny Reb (Thomas Mitchell) who reckons the newcomer may be a damned Yankee!& **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
